with andrea mitchell. >> did you mean to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy? >> yes. i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. he said, you know, they're making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> do you want to respond to that? >> how do you respond to that. john sun nu has a pension for provocation. they can defend that insult, but last night the president again had a very clear adult conversation with the american people about the circumstances we're in today. mitt romney, like the true used car salesman he is, was all over the lot and spinning tales all over the place. people aren't going to buy that lemon. >> supporters of the president, some are not happy today. they feel for example aalone on the $716 billion that romney accused the president of taking out of medicare, the president did not refute that. let me play this moment. it has a lot of people concerned. >> on medicare, for current retirees, he's cutting $716 billion from the pr
and say what is it exactly that he said, and is it true? i know andrea mitchell did a good fact check on your air about this tax issue and how bogus his claim was that he's not supporting a $5 trillion tax cut that he can't pay for. so all of these issues are going to be discussed over the next 30 days. and i think the american people will sort it out. and they're going to make the right decision. >> you talked to the president after the debate last night. was he satisfied with his performance? >> well, like i've said before, the president's never satisfied with his performance. he's always challenging himself, and he will -- this, he'll review it, and if he wants to make some changes in the next debate, he'll do so. what he was satisfied with is that he went and he told the american people the truth. and i think he's fairly well convinced that governor romney didn't meet that standard. so, you know, that's going to be an issue in these coming 30 days. you know, you can't -- you can't tell the american people up is down and down is up and ignore your history and ignore your statements
of the supporters are coaching that president obama be more aaggressive. megyn: andrea mitchell is asking axlerod if you rethought the extra egypt of not bringing up women's issues. there was a lot of this in this conference call. >> all the reportsers are so polite, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. they call him ax. they all hang out together on the georgetown cocktail circuit. but what you find out on the cocktail reporters is the reporters fashion themselves as amateur political consultants. megyn: it would be nice if we could hear more about the 47%. but that was a legitimate question. asking why didn't he bring that up? o'reilly spent almost his whole show asking that question and o'reilly doesn't have a dog in this race. >> it was a polite way to saying to david axlerod, did you not adequately prepare the president? but nobody seems to be blaming president obama. i think they would have been better served if they had come out into the spin room wednesday night and said we didn't do as well as we could have. but we have a great plan for america, then they could move on. instead t
